Resolved Question: Questions about Estonia?
So, I'm moving to Tallinn, Estonia, and I have a few questions about the country before I have to integrate.
First of all, how's the internet access there? And can you bring American computers into Estonia and still use their internet?
If one's Estonian language is rather limited, but they speak pretty good Russian, how easily would they be able to communicate?
I think that's all, but anything else you can tell me about the country would be great.

Resolved Question: What is the Political
The Wikipedia page says that it's very democratic with few human rights violations. I got interested in the country because a friend of mine said it had the fewest religious people of any country next to China. What I'm looking for though, is their stance on reproductive rights, immigration rights, their economic legislation, that sort of thing. I'm unfortunately looking at this through an American scope so in general what I might be looking for is whether Estonia's politics/economy is, as we say, "right" or "left."
